New York Professional Outreach Program

For 25 years, UMass Amherst’s New York Professional Outreach Program (NYPOP) has served UMass visual art students, facilitating travel to New York city and hosting intensive, two-day encounters with arts professionals. 

In 2016, NYPOP’s reach was expanded to include all departments in the College of Humanities and Fine Arts, providing the invaluable service of helping humanities and arts students understand their limitless opportunities and bridge the divide between academia and the professional world.
